In the present chapter we turn to problems which are related to a system of many cells, as well as to the time-dependence of ligand capture by such a system. The rough model calculations which follow are inspired by the fact that in the tissues of a living organism the cells which are involved in chemoreception will often not occur in isolation but in great numbers. This leads us to consider chemoreception by identical cells which are distributed in space with some number density (r⃗,t) which can be a function of space and time.
